Whitehaven Coal has reported a 2019-20 half-year net profit of $27.4 million, which is 91 per cent lower than previously. Despite the decline, it still managed to declare a dividend, although shareholders will only receive a payment of $0.015 per share, compared to the $0.20 per share they received for the previous corresponding period. Falling thermal coal prices were the biggest contributor to Whitehaven’s profit decline, while its coal production was down by 31 per cent.
